Easter Gifts and Happy Hens - Monday 1st April

Good Morning Friends
....I promise no April Fool's tricks from me today!

As promised yesterday, here are the last few Easter gifts I made...

I photographed the box before wrapping in cellophane..I've been using a deconstructed box that holds pods for our coffee machine as an easy template and have been using some 12x12 card in various yellows, greens and pinks from my stash. For this one I used a stripey card and punched around the edges with a Martha Stewart punch. I created the handle in the same way...added a golden bunny, some other choccie eggs and an egg from each of our girls ....and there  we have a present for Tom's parents and brother, as well as an extra hen egg for cousin Sandra, who is staying with them!

The little favour boxes are examples of table treats for the other guests - each one contains a miniature gold bunny and some little choccie eggs. I also wrapped these in cello bags and tied with yellow ribbon. These boxes are made using Spellbinders Square Bracket Edge Box. They are some I had left from when I bough the kit from Christine Emberson last year, but they were put together and decorated by myself.

This is a close up of the gift box and inside the little favor boxes. I am also showing the little Easter card I made to go with the gift. The stamp is by LOTV, coloured with promarkers and using backing paper from a Nitwit download.

Yesterday we were having such problems with the internet connection that I am sorry if I didn't get to comment on all your blogs...I even got so frustrated that when I uploaded the above photos to my Facebook page in the morning, I actually typed that they were Christmas treats...of course I got wished a Happy Christmas by my friends...oops!

Finally, the hens have been loving the sunshine and are truly full of the joys of Spring at the moment...





Bella and Cara are the two 'beak-ball' fans, they will tackle each other until the last grain of corn has been  spilt on to the grass...Penny gives up and comes to me for corn from the hand and Lacey follows her!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you all have a lovely day,
